I love my Skull Squad set too, but I do not use it, because it tend to shine easily; thus, I would let it go along with keyboards that may go on sale later this year. I am pretty sure our GH fellows may be very happy to give it a home.

Might be the first DSA Alps set?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

i think there's an IC for some blue-ish set (alpine right?). it's not to my liking though :(

people give DSA a bad rap but it's honestly fine with me, especially in PBT with dyesub legends. after all, topre pbt is pretty thin and i prefer it over thick cherry doubleshot ABS :))

I must admit I've not been following it, not having an Alps keyboard.

Although I do have an Alps keycap set on the way, which shows my dedication.  Or lunacy.

yr wild.
i am gonna be building a 60% soon with AEK2 caps, but i'm SURE i'll want to swap them out at some point if more caps are available. i can't stand DCS but DSA Granite might actually convince me not to use the AEK caps :)

I kinda like the AEK caps - the slightly italic legends are sweet, almost like the Filco legends (at least the legends on my Filco yellow keycaps).  Maybe 'cause it's something a little different to the norm.

the legends are great but i also really like the feeling of the smooth pbt. a bit of a break from the norm :) the profile's kinda wacky too -- i'm pretty curious to see how it fares on a 60%.

Will there be another group buy or is it only a mass drop purchase now?
Also for those that purchased the WASD set for gaming are the keycaps contoured?

The best part of Granite is that being die subbed it can have the more unique legends around.
